flipping the bird

i am channeling some pretty crazy vibes at the moment– pretty much in keeping with my mood/personality.
i am literally going crazy over this dolce and gabbana baggy too. my infatuation has enveloped into a cyber-stalking sesh of any lucky fruitcake who has one. demi from chicmuse is high on the stalking list– what a babe she is. i mean honestly. WHAT A BABE!
Annnnnnd speaking of fruitcakes- who new gorman could be so witty. these high waisted bikinis are rad and the model wearing them, even radder. not to mention that epic fruit hat. i think i am lusting more over that tropical turban concoction more than the bathers themselves. I mean imagine sipping on fruit cocktails in the sun while fashioning such an eye-catching beauty! wow– if that's not béb-a-licious, i don't know what is.

and to top off crazed tirant of fashion musing– karen walker has pretty much blown my socks off with this new collection. those glasses take 'cat's-eye's' sunnies to a whole new level. i was still infatuated with her previous collection, and then BAM, WHOWZA, KAZZAM, out jumps this epic chunk of karen walker wisdom.
the mop heads are funky too. am considering donning a similar mop hair-do. what do you reckon? too wan? maybeeeeeee.

OOOOOH– what's up with me I hear you ask?
well the last few weeks have been jam packed (fuller than the jam factory itself) with work (yay new job– isn't it fab when you actually look forward to going to work? what a novelty experience!) training, and, riding my bike in mad circles. quite fun actually, as long as you don't a) get hit by a car (true story), b) fall off (another true story) or c) forget the key to your bike lock, after you have chained it to a pole– so clever!

enjoy the sunshine my children! you know I will be!

rachel rutt

this series of gorgeous photographs by the über talented 19yr old photographer Ryan Kenny of the über gorgeous rachel rutt in the (yep, you guessed it) über gorgeous australian wilderness is simply..... gorgeous!

the misty lens effect and de-saturated tones make for such a mysterious and dreamy mood- who wouldn't want to go camping after seeing this! i am personally craving some bare-legged running, and bare bottomed swimming. even the idea of a camp fire, and sleeping under the stars seems so damn attractive at the moment.
who wants to go camping with me?!

thanks to oracle fox for the heads-up. truly wonderful photographic work right here.

i have been offline for the last week, and cannot express how much out-of-the-loop i feel. god-damn internet has been my never-fail source of what's-rad and what's-cool, and without it i feel, well, un-rad and definitely un-cool.

because of my lack of cool-awareness, i have nothing 'cool' to blog about. so, as an entry level post, bambi seemed oh-so perfect. can always rely on her to be über rad!

love this shoot more than candy right now...

cat anyone?

today i got my uni assignments back from marking, and i am happy to say, the cats pulled through!
those feline fancies sure did make me proud, scoring me two beautiful HDs and giving me something to smile about.
I had a goooooooood feeling about these proj's and it is nice to get some über positive feedback for once. i am officially sans disappointment! who likes disapointment anyone – it's like everyone's seedy unrelated uncle, who just hangs around awkwardly at family functions, making rude comments and making everyone uncomfortable. a wet rag at a ravin' party. disappointment sucks!
butt (yes the bottom kind) I am not disappointed, so beb, don't worry about seedy uncle, cos he ain't here!

and so, in thanks to the cats which made my life so cheerful, I give you a pictorial ode-to-cats. enjoy and savoy!

add to cart

just hit purchase on these two Urban Outfitters babies.
these funky pink jeans have been playing on my mind for some time now, and at $19.99 they were impossible to resist.
as for the drapey black cheap monday number – it reminded my oh so much of the drapey a-wang number i love so much. if i can't have the real thing i may as well splash out the thirty bucks to get a look-a-like, copy-cat version.
i am one happy camper!

what is this...some kind of design blorrrrg

since starting my new job at a design firm, i am finding more and more relevance in designy-things.
yeah, i know i should have found relevance in designy-things a long time ago, seeing as i am studying design at uni. ahhh well better late than never i guess!

so, here are some pictures of some cool design stuff i found floating around on the web. a few cats may have snuck into the mix there – the obsession is still going strong. I think perhaps choosing to theme two of my major project on cats was probably a slight mistake on my part...
i am even starting to dream about them...

floral vomit

people are talking.

yes, they are raving and ranting.

they are not discussing how 'happenin' and cool colour blocking is (because that is just lame), and they are not discussing the right and wrong way to wear neon, because there is only the wrong.

no, they are literally vomiting floral patterns at a rate which is beginning to threaten the lifespan of plain un-patterned fabrics. models are beginning to emulate floral couches from the 90s, and curtains from my grandma's house.

it should be no real surprise that I think this fashion of floral on floral bombardment is absolutely rad!

so, to prove my point i did some flicking on and this is what i found. (please enjoy my googled couch also. i reckon its pri-tty bangin')

all images (minus the couch) from

1. erdem spring 2012 – no one does floral like erdem. in fact until now, no one has actually done floral at all, apart from erdem that is, who do it EVERY season, without fail. who am i kidding, i dig their monochromatic (in a pattern sense) style. floral overloading is baben, and so are erdem.
2.stella mccartney resort 2012 – we've all been expecting this floral explosion from stella for a while now. at least ever since her graphic table-cloth floral print last season. and yes, its symmetrical and aligned and perfectly cut. everything you would expect from this tailoring master.
3. camilla and marc spring 2012 – nice to see some up-to-the-minute, fashion forward-ness from our aussie babes at camilla and marc.i am felling some romance was born vibes here....
4. céline resort 2012 –this is the extreme vomiting i was talking about. three-piece floral suit. hot, rad, baben, couch (couch is an adjective...)
5. funky couch doing funky things

alright peepies, that's enough from me. go watch some horses run around caulfield.
